Wentworth Point Town Centre honored at PCA/Rider Levett Bucknall Awards

12 years in the making, major project named 2022 Australian development of the year

Sydney’s Wentworth Point Town Centre, the $3.5 billion master planned town centre district of more than 30 buildings begun in 2010, has taken out Australia’s top property honour after being named the Rider Levett Bucknall Australian Development of the Year 2022.

Located near Sydney Olympic Park, the Wentworth Point Town Centre, which includes more than 3,700 apartments, an award-winning ‘super neighbourhood’ shopping centre, a purpose-built medical facility, and a Community Centre and Library, exemplifies an innovative approach to developing a new high-density residential community with an exceptional level of public amenity.

With final construction scheduled to be finished in 2025, the pioneering project by the Billbergia Group in Wentworth Point near Sydney Olympic Park, has to date completed six of seven planned phases. 

The master plan’s overarching strategy centres on community, amenity, and identity. As a result, the project has supplied the required transportation infrastructure to fully realise the peninsula’s growth potential and establish a bustling town centre.

Property Council of Australia (PCA) Chief Executive, Ken Morrison said the extraordinary development of the year winner is a testament to Billbergia’s 15-year vision to create a thriving community.

“The town centre is an exceptional example of a well-thought-out and executed master-planned community that has produced the sense of a small city, with high-quality amenities and landscaping that have combined to create a sophisticated liveable neighbourhood,” he said.

RLB Oceania Chairman, Peter Tulla said the project has created a new high-density community with outstanding public amenity and services.

“Billbergia’s commitment to building a socially responsible development should be applauded,” he said.

“The development sets the standard for city shaping, and RLB was pleased to have our own Stephen Mee work on the project.”

At the Gala dinner on Friday evening, Danielle Savio from Multiplex took home the Bridge 42 Award for ‘Future Leader of the Year’, GHD was awarded the ‘FDC Award for Diversity’ (more than 250 employees) while Rork Projects won the ‘FDC Award for Diversity’ (less than 250 employees).

In collaboration with RLB since 1982, the prestigious awards have promoted excellence in design and innovation in the built environment.

From 116 finalists, the winners were selected by a high calibre judging panel made up of 11 property specialists and chaired by John V. McCarthy AO.
